It was some eight months ago when the Tribeca Film Festival let me to check out Supporting Characters, a New York-set comedy about (this might be a first) the lives of two film editors. The film, from writer-director Daniel Schechter, turned out to be both a nice little comedy and a surprisingly insightful meld of their profession, already pertinent to my interests, and some relationship dynamics you’d come to expect. If you’re a fan of Girls and Tiny Furniture star Alex Karpovsky, all the better. (Lena Dunham‘s own participation doesn’t go past one scene, however.)
So, in anticipation of its January release, a trailer’s been put out for all to see. This is perfectly fine on its own, but not what I’d consider the best peek into Supporting Characters‘ tone; things, suddenly, look far more dramatic, while the film itself is pretty light. That, of course, is not the same as inert or flat, and Schechter‘s actual movie is perfectly marketable on its own. But, if this slightly different angle gets people to check out a quality indie, I’m just fine.
The preview can be seen below:
Here’s the poster, too:
